Search for a place

The search bar at the top of the win­dow will au­to­mat­i­cally sug­gest places as you type. You can en­ter place names, land­marks, venues, and zip codes, as well as the name of any per­son in Con­tacts whose ad­dress you have stored.

Traf­fic con­di­tions

Once your jour­ney is plot­ted on the map, pick Show > Show Traf­fic to see the con­di­tions on the roads you are plan­ning to travel on, in­clud­ing any slow‑mov­ing ar­eas that you should avoid.

Tailor di­rec­tions

You can ad­just the di­rec­tions given by Maps to suit your needs for a par­tic­u­lar jour­ney. Click View > Di­rec­tions > Driving Op­tions to avoid toll roads or highways, for ex­am­ple.

Get lo­ca­tion info

A red pin marks your des­ti­na­tion. Click it, then the “i” to get ex­tra info on the lo­ca­tion, add it to your fa­vorites, re­port an is­sue, and more. Click a step in di­rec­tions to zoom around that part of the jour­ney. Click and hold on a place to drop a new pin there.

Take a tour

The info box also lets you take a Fly­over tour. In a se­lec­tion of ma­jor cities, this moves over the des­ti­na­tion and shows you no­table at­trac­tions. Click the 3D but­ton and switch to Satel­lite mode for a sim­i­lar view that lets you ex­plore freely.

Check the weather

Zoom in and the app shows lo­cal weather and tem­per­a­ture con­di­tions at the top right. This info is for the lo­ca­tion at the cen­ter of the map.
